World Teachers’ Day 2017

World Teachers Day 2017

Internationally, World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on the first Friday in October. However,
as this is usually during Australian school holidays, Australia celebrates the day on the last
Friday in October of each year.
World Teachers’ Day was inaugurated on 5 October 1994 by the United Nations
Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to commemorate the 1966
joint signing of the UNESCO/ILO (International Labour Organization) Recommendation concerning the
Status of Teachers.
